Fine Art Sculpture

About me

I’ve lived almost all my life in North Ayrshire and studied at GSA as a mature student. 16 years after leaving art school I found my mentor, Andy Sinclair. He revitalised my compulsion to make and so I began to return to my first love, sculpture. My casts are currently made from resin with metal powders or pigments added. I’m becoming increasingly fascinated by the effects I can achieve from different metal powders.

Using clay as my primary modelling medium, I explore my interest in both the human condition and our visceral connection to the landscape. My investigations focus on figurative sculpture, exploring our relationship with ourselves, others and the environment. Through my work I hope to explore fragmented memories of our passage through time and the landscape. I want to try to give substance to a moment or feeling that’s on the periphery of our consciousness, it’s there but elusive, we have trouble grasping it, holding on to it.

In early 2018, the opportunity arose to become one of Craft Town Scotland’s makers. I moved into Studio 117, which is now my main base for creating and teaching sculpture.

The Craft studios are open to the public three  days a week throughout the year, where visitors can buy work direct from makers and experience the making process first hand.
